Dementia-friendly Christmas Day church options

I don’t have a video church service specifically for Christmas Day. However, here are options if you’d like to provide a celebration on Sunday, December 25, for your residents or loved ones living with Alzheimer’s or another dementia.

  1. If you don’t use it the night before, you can show the Christmas Eve service on Christmas Day (Sunday). Although the video references the evening, the readings, songs, and homily are all still appropriate for Christmas Day.

2. You could host a rousing Christmas carol sing-along, along with one or more of the devotions and crafts offered in my Advent Devotions and Activities PDF.

3. If you use the Christmas Eve service on December 24, you could consider showing the Christ the King Sunday service on Dec. 25. Christ the King Sunday happened on November 20 this year, but it was an “extra” video because it overlapped with my Thanksgiving service. Note that it doesn’t reference Christmas per se, but it’s a lovely meditation on what it means that Jesus came to serve and save us.

And as always, all of these resources are FREE and suitable for elder residents or loved ones living with Alzheimer’s or another dementia.

I hope you have a delightful time celebrating the wonderful truth of Emmanual, God With Us.

Merry Christmas!
